Tiger Way is a mixed-use scheme which includes a new primary school, nursery and residential apartments, the sale of which funded the school. The hybrid building separates uses horizontally and vertically with outdoor amenity space at different roof levels. The combined footprint makes efficient use of the site area without compromising either function, which each has its own identity within a scheme unified by a shared language of materials and architecture. The school pops with colour while the residential blocks feature more ‘sophisticated’ bronze elements.
